50 Wise Speakers


The 50 Wise Speakers website allows you to study public speaking.  The website allows you to select transcripts of speeches based on categories (such as business, education, or government), questions (such as delivery, stage fright, and humor), or based on the speaker themselves.

The Public Speaking Project

The Public Speaking Project website provides an online textbook, video slide presentations on various public speaking topics and handouts.  The content on this site has been contributed by various speech professionals. The site intends to add and update content regularly and states that activities will soon be added for further practice and engagement of the content by students.  Also, the site is in the process of creating a space for instructors called ‘Faculty Lounge’ to access and share syllabai, manuals, and class activities for public speaking.
